Red-necked Grebes in Oxwich Bay

Although there are around 50 records of Red-necked Grebe in West Glamorgan, this is only the fourth occurence in the last 10 years and to see two was a bonus. The birds were loosely associating with a group of 24 Great Crested Grebes, but interestingly there were far fewer Cormornats and no divers in the bay today. Mark (Hipkin) fortunately had his camera with him and managed to take these record shots:
